Regrettable Ink is a tattoo removal service in Rome, GA

Advanced Technology

PicoSure is the first and leading choice for comfortable and convenient tattoo removal AND skin revitalization treatments for wrinkles, acne scars, and pigment issues, such as freckles, sunspots, and discoloration.

PicoSure’s Advanced Sophistication

The PicoSure laser is the world’s most sophisticated laser platform for tattoo removal. Here’s why:

  • It creates shock-waves to shatter the pigment, instead of creating heat to break down the particles of tattoo pigment.
  • It causes less damage to the skin than any other laser tattoo removal system.
  • It reduces the pain associated with tattoo removal.
  • It can be used to remove most tattoo ink colors AND in almost all Fitzpatrick skin types.
  • It can safely be used for patients of all races and ethnicities.

PicoSure is the first of a new generation of aesthetic lasers that do not rely on heat to burn or melt away unwanted tattoo ink or melanin (pigment that causes dark spots in your skin). Instead, this laser creates extremely rapid pulses (one trillionth of a second) of 755 nm laser energy to shatter the ink particles with PressureWave technology. These smaller particles of ink are more efficiently eliminated from the body by our immune-lymphatic system. Less heat means less tissue damage and discomfort.

PressureWave Technology in Action

A useful analogy is that tattoo ink particles are like rocks, and the Q-switched nano-second lasers break the pigment particles into pebbles, whereas the PicoSure 755 nm pico-second laser blasts the pigment particles into sand.

The PicoSure laser delivers ultrashort laser pulses measured in picoseconds (10 -12 seconds) compared to the traditional Q-switched laser, which delivers laser pulses in nanoseconds (10 -9 seconds). Unlike other picosecond devices, PicoSure® utilizes a 755 nm wavelength of light that naturally targets melanin and the darker tattoo pigments.

The 755 nm energy, delivered in trillionths of a second pulses, relies less on the photo-thermal action of longer-pulsed devices, instead creating an intense photo-mechanical impact. This PressureWave technology not only spares the skin from high thermal damage, it also has greater disruption of the target (chromophore/ink) with better clearance using less energy and fewer treatments. In layman’s terms, the PicoSure laser behaves more like a jack-hammer than like a blow-torch.

The other unique feature of the PicoSure laser is the patented Focus Lens Array. The Focus Lens uses a diffractive lens to precisely redistribute and deliver 755 nm energy to the skin. Both the high and low intensity energy helps to shatter stubborn pigments under the skin, while the high energy creates Laser-Induced Optical Breakdown (LIOB) in the epidermis without damaging the skin surface.

LIOBs are a form of cavitation expanding so quickly that they create pressure waves, which transmit into the dermis. This pressure squeezes the surrounding cells and simulates a pressure injury, activating cell signaling and inducing an enhanced inflammatory healing response. This process leads to increased collagen and elastin production in the dermis without the damage caused by energy passing through the dermal-epidermal junction.

The PicoSure laser platform is vastly superior to all other systems and should be your first and only choice for laser tattoo removal.
